LATEST NHS 111 GUIDANCE

SICK NOTES 

We are getting a lot of calls from patients asking for a sick note for their employer. The link below provides information on guidance on what people will need ("if employees need to provide evidence to their employer that they need to stay at home due to coronavirus, they will be able to get it from the NHS 111 Online instead of having to get a fit note from their doctor").
 
 
PLEASE NOTE: Until further guidance is available, if you require a letter to self-isolate  please download and use this as the practice will not provide a medical certificate for patients requiring self-isolation for coronavirus.
